Bodega Burglary in Bronx Results in $100,000 Cash Theft

In a daring overnight heist, a Bronx bodega located on University Avenue at 174th Street in Morris Heights fell victim to a meticulously planned burglary. Bodega workers reported that an estimated $100,000 in cash was stolen after the store had closed on Monday. Surveillance footage revealed a lone individual gaining unauthorized access to the premises and meticulously searching for cash behind the counter.

According to the United Bodegas of America, a union representing bodega workers, the perpetrator or perpetrators employed a crowbar to gain entry through a back entrance, suggesting a coordinated effort. The burglars displayed a level of sophistication by strategically blocking most of the store’s surveillance cameras, including one at a door they managed to obstruct. Additionally, they severed all Wi-Fi wiring, further hampering any potential identification.

In response to this audacious crime, the United Bodegas of America has announced a $10,000 reward for anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible. The organization is determined to bring the culprits to justice and ensure the safety and security of bodega workers across the city.

Local authorities are actively investigating the incident, analyzing the surveillance footage and gathering any available evidence to identify the individuals involved. The NYPD urges anyone with information to come forward and assist in their efforts to solve this brazen burglary.
